Prophecies against Neighboring Nations

1 The burden of the word of the LORD is against the land of Hadrach, with 1Damascus as its resting place (for the eyes of men, especially of all the tribes of Israel, are toward the LORD ),
2 And 2Hamath also, which borders on it; 3Tyre and 4Sidon, though they are 5very wise.
3 For Tyre built herself a 6fortress And 7piled up silver like dust, And 8gold like the mire of the streets.
4 Behold, the Lord will 9dispossess her And cast her wealth into the sea; And she will be 10consumed with fire.
5 Ashkelon will see it and be afraid. Gaza too will writhe in great pain; Also Ekron, for her expectation has been confounded. Moreover, the king will perish from Gaza, And Ashkelon will not be inhabited.
6 And a mongrel race will dwell in 11Ashdod, And I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
7 And I will remove their blood from their mouth And their detestable things from between their teeth. Then they also will be a remnant for our God, And be like a clan in Judah, And Ekron like a Jebusite.
8 But I will camp around My house because of an army, Because of 12him who passes by and returns; And 13no oppressor will pass over them anymore, For now I have seen with My eyes.
